The George Gee Swing Orchestra: The only Chinese-American professional Swing big band leader, George Gee is unique in so many ways. The snap in his fingers, the shuffle in his step and that unbridled joy he radiates and spreads like ecstatic wildfire to all his world-class musicians make immediate and permanent impressions on audiences of all types! It must be in his blood since he was a kid, all George ever wanted to do was lead his own big band. A native New Yorker, George always loved music. He grew up with rock 'n' roll and R&B but also developed a powerful passion for Swing - especially for the big band styles of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton, Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Cab Calloway and other legends. With each performance, Georges powerhouse 17-piece Swing Orchestra continues to set new standards elegantly balancing the genuine big band tradition with exhilarating modernism.
